Clinical Specialties: I hold my MA Degree in Clinical Psychology from California and I’m Licensed as a Marriage Family Therapist. I work with children, adolescents, individual adults, couples, families and groups. Here are some examples what kind of clientele I work with; clients with depression, bereavement, grief & loss, miscarriage, divorce, different anxiety difficulties, panic attacks, trauma, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, self-esteem issues, parent/child difficulties, parent education, couples difficulties & other relationship problems, family systems struggles, life transition, relocation & expat difficulties etc…
Cross-Cultural Experience: I was born and raised in Germany and moved to California at age 22. In the USA, I inquired my education to become a clinical psychologist and licensed marriage family therapist. In May 2006 I moved to Singapore and opened my private practice/company called California Counseling Pte Ltd. and worked there as a clinician and director. In October 2013, I moved back to Europe and kept my company in Singapore. I continued to see former and new clients worldwide on line via Skype or VSee and I opened a new branch in the Netherlands offering face to face services there as well. A colleague of mine is momentarily still running the Singapore office. In October 2015 I moved my private practice from the Netherlands to Switzerland. Since November 2015, I have been providing “in person” psychological services in Zurich, Wadenswil & Zug and I’m continually giving online services via Skype and VSee. Since I have been an expat myself for many years, I know what it feels like to move around, starting all over. It is normal for expat families to face many challenges once the first excitement of being in a new place has worn off. A person might feel dull or empty, sad, out of place, frustrated, angry, lonely or indifferent and does not understand what is wrong or how to find his way back of feeling content and happy as he used to be. In case you find yourself in such a place and you can’t put your finger on why you or a family member feels like this since your relocation, I do understand your struggles and can help to figure out which part of your internal world you have neglected and walk beside you to get back on track again.
